Everton today launched their new away shirt for the 2010-11 season. And it’s pink, yes pink. Don’t say we didn’t warn you (we posted a sneak peek of the shirt last week).

Everton’s new away jersey is described as “lightning pink” with a navy blue bar across the chest. According to the club website, the shirt color “combination that has been designed to make players more visible in their teammates’ peripheral vision.” You can say that again. There’s no doubt that players, fans and TV viewers won’t notice the bright pink shirts!

Designed and manufactured by Le Coq Sportif, the new Everton away shirt is inspired by the Everton of old explains Everton chief executive Robert Elstone: “This new kit takes its inspiration from our Club’s history, indeed it dates back to the 1890/91 season when Everton were crowned league champions for the very first time. The old pink kit saw Everton crowned champions, we want this new kit to help take Everton to the next level.”

    Must admit it looks good with the full kit, navy blue shorts and socks – growing on me. My daughter will definitely want one – will appeal the female market.

  5. David says:

    Hahahahahahahaha, can’t wait for my blueshite mates to be wearing this and claiming its not pink but salmon, like they did last time

  6. Gaz Hunt says:

    Whoa! That. Is. Pink.

  7. Lee says:

    No, no, no, all wrong. Palermo make pink look good. This has got it all wrong.

  8. Mitchum says:

    It just looks like a f*cking t-shirt though. A £40 t-shirt. Call me old fashioned, but I like my football shirts to look like football shirts, regardless of colour.

  9. lee hitchmough says:

    really not sure about this kit.will have to wait to see it properly but at the moment i do not like it. i know its our traditional colours which i have no problem but plz le coq sportif sack your designer my 6 year old daughter could of done better.

  10. Dave C says:

    “There’s no doubt that players, fans and TV viewers won’t notice the bright pink shirts!”

    Shouldn’t this read “There’s no CHANCE that players, fans and TV viewers won’t notice the bright pink shirts!”…or alternatively, “There’s no doubt that players, fans and TV viewers won’t FAIL to notice the bright pink shirts”?

    Call me a grammar-stickler if you want, but the current sentence suggests that it is undoubtedly true that no one will be able to see a player wearing fluorescent pink.

  11. Susie says:

    Well said!!!

  12. ovalball says:

    By Le Coq Sportif? That explains it.

    Stade Francais on the soccer pitch.

    • ovalball says:

      And I’m really looking forward to the Everton @ Blackpool match!

      • PatFromSeattle says:

        Orange & White vs Pink & Blue? My god man, our eyes will bleed! ;-)

        In all honesty, I liked the black with pink stripes they had last year. Honestly a little sad they decided to leave it behind. Also fairly confident I won’t be picking this particular kit up for myself.

      • Zola612 says:

        Ummm… won’t Everton just wear their blue and white 1st kits when they play Blackpool.
        It is not actually an “Away” kit it is a “change” or “2nd” kit.

  13. brn442 says:

    Unlike Rafa the idiot, who has issues with his sexuality, grown men can wear pink, Juventus once did, their’ 90′s kappa pink re-issue is a collector’s item if you can get one. The template for this shirt is the disappointing part. Typical mediocrity from Le Croq

  14. 2Tix4Chelsea says:

    The shirt is awful. Pink, salmon, whatever the color. Are they playing for a particular cause? Leave the cancer curing to doctors and researchers and go play football. Everton’s “cause” should only be 1 thing, “Winning the Premiership Title.”

    Unfortunately, neither winning the title nor curing cancer will come next season.

    • brn442 says:

      Winning the premiership? Based on that comment they should probably have a cause for mental illness as well. Everton are more likely to find a cure for cancer than win the league fella.

  15. Dave from Newcastle says:

    That is just NASTY looking–Never thought I’d see a worse shirt than that ugly orange thing Barca used last year, but that Pink is way worse

  16. Karen says:

    That is without a doubt the ugliest shirt I have ever seen.

  17. Mark says:

    I like it. It makes a statement. One thing I’ve been taught in my life, never lip off to a man in either pink or a plaid skirt if you wish to see the next day.

  18. Eious says:

    I am surprised at how many do not like it

    It comes off to me as quite a good shirt. It is different, stylish and not some sort of pure publicity stunt

  19. Hibs Daft says:

    There will no excuses for misplaced passes that’s for sure.

  20. efc jon says:

    Like it… just ordered one on line…. it snacks of originality rather than the generic kits these days.

  21. tony says:

    its s**t! end of!

  22. Ryan says:

    In my opinion this shirt is the best shirt we have released! Just because it’s pink it doesn’t make it gay!! Stylish and modern and as pre mentioned in an earlier comment ” snacks originality rather than the generic kits these days”. Well played EFC for making this kit rather than a boring old white one! I’ve just wornthe shirt in SA at the England games and had more positive comments than negative!!

  23. SAUNDY says:

    THE KIT IS “HOT” LET THEM EAT THEIR HEARTS OUT although i prefer the strip before

  24. Steve says:

    Note that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All NFL teams in the U.S. are wearing at least some pink during the month of October to show their support.
